I've included some pics and I have a question..

When installing a pinion seal, is it as easy as removing the nut, sliding everything off/out, pick out the old seal, and pop in the new one? I'll be doing the same thing for the D30 later.


Thanks, ALL
Hey Scott, Just picked up on yours and Clay's build today. LOOKS GREAT so far (I know, I'm way behind). What is this "rust converter"? Is it naval jelly? Thanks...David

EDIT: guess I should've googled before asking the stupid question. I got it thanks anyway.

No such thing as a stupid question, David! I appreciate you checking out the thread. The rust converter we used (same stuff we were painting the tranny with earlier in the thread) is made by Rustoleum and is available at WalMart.

There have been comments about painting over rust converters in general, and some paints may not be compatible. So I would recommend contacting tech support and asking them if you have that in mind. That being said, I used Valspar Implement paint (satin black) over the rust converter with no issues.

Scott, did you see the post on the Permatex brand rust converter by JH? Seems like good stuff too.

Getting back to the topic, from what I hear the Permatex rust converter works well.

Disclaimer: I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH IT WHATSOEVER, so I can't recommend it.

Thanks for the follow up because when I googled "rust converter", it brought up some pretty expensive products that I know I couldn't run out and buy. After all I have much more elbow grease than money, but if Rustoleum makes a product it should be feasible. Also the Valspar is Lowe's brand isn't it? Do they carry the implement paint?

Sidenote: I sure hope the riff raff that had their comments deleted didn't follow me in. I thought I closed the door behind me but I will double check from now on. I didn't see the comments. Did I wake up the haters that you mentioned in your reply?

Ironically, I read it just this morning! It looks like the identical stuff to the Rustoleum brand, which looks identical to the Gempler's brand, etc! Same appearance, foam, coating, action, etc. As Jeephammer did, I too used it on rusty wheels (Clay's). Without ever having covered the rust converter with a topcoat, leaving only the rust coverter as the final coat, after 2+ years it has not rusted again.

If you read the whole thread you would see all of the stuff I have used and the mistakes I have made. MOST of the rust converter I have used is plain old Ospho, which is Phosphoric Acid... $14/Gallon at True Value. It leaves a white scale when dry which you have to remove before painting. The Gempler's brand and Rustoleum brand work well. They leave rusty steel black, which gives a psychological satisfaction (becasue you can SEE the change!). For peace of mind, it doesn't really matter what you pay... you MUST be happy with the result, regardless what anybody else says.

Don't get lost on Riffraff! We are ALL riffraff from time to time... I'm no exception. We'd never learn a thing if we didn't have the diverse personalities and characters of the JF community.

Officially, the tranny crossmember is bolted back up! YAY!! I don't know if it is the same for all of you, but it is diifficult to bolt the tranny back to the crossmember... the two bolts that go up from the bottom. With Clay on the creeper, and me using my superior muscles of steel from above , we scooched the engine/tranny back enough to get those two stubborn bolts in. Soooo, officially, ALL OF IT is back in place since repairing the frame nuts. The tranny is officially lowered, the driveline looks officially "good enough" to me, and the tub is officially ready to go back on the frame....









... once we find the missing tub bushing.
